Endoscopic Thoracic Sympathectomy surgery was performed on me in 2002 for hyperhidrosis . In 2003 I became arthritic, developed Raynauds, lost thyroid-gained too much weight , extreme pain in arms from shoulders to fingertips from brachial plexus injury, vertigo, nausea, fatigue, a weird rash on my neck, pits in my nails, insomnia, restless leg syndrome, emotional distress, mental fogginess, and constant headache. I was not informed of any of these side effects prior to surgery.

I have now read reports comparing this surgery to Lobotomy, and side effects mimic fibromyalgia. My heart races almost constantly?as the flight-or fight syndrome is no longer working. I recently discovered via my medical records that i have an unusual lung condition that sometimes prevents the surgery being done. Instead of canceling surgery--Dr went ahead and cut my nerves(instead of clamping). never told me about my lung--or being cut.

Numerous Internet forums report all of us feel nothing emotionally anymore?as if we were unplugged. Men are experiencing erectile/ejaculatory problems and incontinence.This surgery is now banned in sweden and partially in taiwan. Dr's not only inflate their success* numbers, but they wont study anyone after 3 years.This is when many symptoms appear. In texas, we have 2 years to sue for malpractice. by the time we find out we are destroyed...we cant sue.

Here's another study showing the small follow-up dates..

http://www.clinicaltrials.gov/ct/show/NCT00225069?order=1

these dr's know full well what they are concealing from us. this surgery isnt new..and has been used in the past for emotional/mental disorders. (possibly still performed by dr telantra at privatix clinic)

I am 38 years old and I was a disc-jockey/Journalist for KACC radio in Alvin texas....I am now on Government payments for disability. I can never work again. I can never have children. I can never be normal again.
